Occasionally we include other events from the Colorado Front Range.

1 February 2015


Find a The Death Cafe Event
Where: United States (map)
With a Death Cafe, the idea is to get people from all backgrounds together over tea, coffee and delicious cake, to simply talk about death, a normal aspect of life that is generally feared by our culture. The hope of the Death Cafe movement is to simply normalize this phase of life by allowing groups of people to talk about death. A Death Cafe is not a support group or a means of selling services, but is instead a simple social gathering. There have been Death Cafes all over Colorado and the US. Learn More

A Musical Salute to Winter!
Where: Longmont Senior Center, 910 Longs Peak Ave, Longmont, CO 803501 (map)
Composers have always been inspired by the world around them, particularly the ever-changing whims of nature. In the hands of these music-makers, winter becomes more than a few months of cold. The beauty of snowfall, the introspective gloom of gray days, the quiet of a forest, the bareness of trees, the longing for life to be renewed are all captured in great works by Antonio Vivaldi, Jean-Baptiste Lully, Peter Tchaikovsky, Claude Debussy, Franz Schubert and others (including Paul Simon!). We'll sample a number of these, so be sure to bundle up. Cost is $4.00 at the door. Please RSVP to 303-651-8411. Learn more about the Longmont Senior Center.

The Great Backyard Bird Count
Where: United States (map)
The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual four-day event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are. It’s free, fun, and easy—and it helps the birds! Everyone is welcome from beginning bird watchers to experts. It takes as little as 15 minutes on one day, or you can count for as long as you like each day of the event. Participants tally the number of individual birds of each species they see during their count period. Then enter these numbers on the GBBC website in their GBBC account. Scientists use this information, combined with the info gathered from other sources, to understand what is happening in bird populations. Learn More

Senior Day at The Capitol from Colorado Senior Lobby

Morning Session is at the Old Supreme Court Chambers, The Colorado State Capitol and lunch and afternoon session is at First Baptist Church of Denver located 1 block East of The Capitol at 1373 Grant St. Learn More
